Lots of random thoughts from yours truly today. I'm all over the place.

Ben and I went to Tennessee this weekend to visit his parents. It was a nice, relaxing weekend filled with shopping, golfing (for Ben), eating, and watching basketball. While Ben and his dad were playing golf on Saturday his mother and I went out shopping. I don't normally shop in J Crew too much, but we were at the mall on Saturday and had time to kill so I stopped in. I am LOVING their spring line! I guess the trend this spring is lots of feminine detail ... flowers, ruffles, etc. So stinkin' cute!
I'm not sure how this one would look on me, but I adore the Victorian collar and think I could (maybe) pull the look off.Tracey bought this when I was visiting her in DC ... I absolutley love it but won't copy her!

This would be a great piece for this time of year! And the flowers make it springy.

The second thing I have to report is that I did find a pair of black flat sandals. Not thongs, but they are cute nonetheless. I can't find a picture of them online, so you're just going to have to take my word for it. OH! And I found the best deal on a pair of Kenneth Cole boots --- $16!! I won't be able to wear them until next winter, but for $16 it was so worth it.

I've heard a lot recently about McDonald's new coffees and lattes. I guess they are trying to beef up their coffee offering to compete with Starbucks. I've heard good things about their iced coffees and stuff so I figured it was worth a try. The verdict? Pretty good, but my experience wasn't very good due to the fact that I went to a McDonald's that was a little out of my way. Also, they didn't seem to understand the concept of making a latte with skim milk and no flavor added.

You remember how I posted a few weeks ago about my GOOP challenge? Well, evidently putting it on my blog for 'accountability' doesn't really seem to work out. Because I quit after 3 days. I have worked it into my regular 3-4 days/week workout routine though and think I'm much more apt to stick to it now. We'll see

Lastly, I've been inspired to do a serious closet clean up. Our closet is so overfull and is seriously messy. I'll post before and after photos, but since the before is super embarrassing you'll have to wait until I'm finished! I'm sure I'll come up with some good what not to wear ensembles as well.

you're overcome by consumerism.

Perhaps I am, but seeing as you found my blog by searching for a "lioness cheese grater" I would venture to say that you are not above conumerism yourself.
